The air show will be visible along the majority of the Boardwalk creating an inspiring experience for visitors while they enjoy the hospitality of Ocean City's beach and attractions.

"The inaugural OC Air Show was a fantastic and highly successful event for our community," said Mayor Rick Meehan (back in 2009). "The move to a weekend and the prospect of a step up in performers offered great potential for the show's return in 2009." Next year's show will be even better (ed. comment).
"The entire Thunderbird team is looking forward to coming to Ocean City," said Captain Jason McCree, Thunderbird #12, the team's public affairs officer. "We are humbled at the opportunity to represent service men and women across the globe who defend our freedoms." The GEICO Skytypers and the U.S. Air Force Reserve Bi-Plane piloted by Ed Hamill have announced that they will join the 2009 air show line up.
